golden rough in town for harvest festival / gene clark tribute album launch

via their newsletter (the first I've had from them, I think), Golden Rough say they're coming down next weekend to play a few gigs as part of the Harvest Festival. This year's feature is the launch of a Gene Clark tribute album called You can't hide your love forever, for which Golden Rough teamed up with Joe Pernice on a track.

Their dates are :

  • Friday 25th of October at the Rob Roy, doing the tribute album launch with Dave Graney, Friendly Injun, etc.

  • Saturday 26th at the Corner Hotel, with Lisa Miller, Working Class Ringos, etc. plus some film footage of Neil Young and Townes van Zandt to be shown through the night.

  • Sunday the 27th at the Empress (where I caught them back in April), with Tim Oxley, Treetops and Problem Pony.

But there's also some other bands playing out the back of Raoul Records on the Sunday afternoon (with BBQ, so hopefully it'll be as much fun as the Supersnazz gig they had there), and some rare film footage of Gene Clark, Chris Hillman and other legends like Bill Monroe at the Erwin Radio Theatre in Jonston St, Fitzroy on the Saturday afternoon. Could be interesting.
